It's that time of year, folks. Time to get your income tax documents in order. Don't wait until the last minute. Free tax prep is now available in Austin. For the 7th year in a row, Foundation Communities is working with the City of Austin as well as the United Way to set up tax centers around the city. Lower income families (those with a household income below $50,000 per year) can go to any one of nine tax centers that have been set up around Austin to have their tax returns prepared.
Allan Elementary School (4900 Gonzales St, Rm 153, Austin, TX)
Community Financial Center (2600 W Stassney Ln, Austin, TX)
Goodwill Community Center (1015 Norwood Park Blvd, Austin, TX)
Montopolis Recreation Center (1200 Montopolis Dr, Austin, TX)
Round Rock Public Library (216 E Main St, Round Rock, TX)
South Rural Community Center (3518 FM 973 S, Del Valle, TX)

You qualify for free tax preparation in Austin if you have a household income of up to $50,000 per year for a family of four, up to $55,000 for a family of five, up to $60,000 for a family of six and up to $65,000 for a family of seven. If your household has more than seven members, increase the annual household income by $5000 per member to determine if you qualify. The Round Rock tax preparation site follows slightly different guidelines. For a family of two, your annual household income must be less than $50,000 to qualify. For a family of three, your annual household income can be up to $53,950, up to $59,900 for a family of four, up to $64,700 for a family of five, up to $69,700 for a family of six, up to $74,300 for a family of seven and up to $79,100 for a family of eight. Single filers with annual incomes of up to $50,000 may also get their taxes prepared for free at any of the locations above.
This year, all of the tax centers listed above will be offering any citizens who have their taxes prepared at the center the opportunity to purchase a savings bond using some of their tax refund. Those citizens who purchase a savings bond will become eligible for a $25 HEB gift card. Just ask your tax preparation specialist for information.
Lower income households in the Austin area can have their taxes prepared for free at any of the nine tax centers set up throughout the city and surrounding areas. IRS-certified staff will be preparing your taxes at each center. You don't want to wait until the last minute, especially if you are expecting a refund. Head to one of the centers above to get your tax return taken care of now.
